I dunno what parts ya need, but don't feck around wasting any time with dealers (There are some gooduns, but there's a lot of baduns too, as you've found).
Call hank at American Marine Imports, 01789 491673
He has the largest stock in the UK ready to ship by post, the same day, and you won't find cheaper. Tell him Matt Yorke gave you his details.
